With Medium, you are the product in someone else’s business.

Isn’t it time you took control?

No more paywall! Why should someone else charge entry for your content? With Prezly, anyone can view and subscribe to your stories. Tell your story on your terms. Never worry about algorithms burying your content, or your stories being arbitrarily censored. No middleman. Collect email subscribers that you can reach directly with personalized newsletters and multimedia email campaigns. Your data, not ours. We won’t hold your data hostage. Export your subscriber list and content whenever you want. Do it your way. Use professionally designed themes or build on top of ours with the option to self-host.

[Medium is] completely biased, both in terms of algorithms and in terms of customer engagement.
